Terrific looking indie slide-'em-up shooter Not a Hero is coming to PlayStation 4 on the 2nd February - as we've literally just reported - but there's some sad news buried under the celebrations. Indeed, the Vita version of the game's been cancelled.

The disappointing news comes from developer Roll7's official blog, which, in a rather humorous post, states that the studio had trouble getting the release to run properly on Sony's handheld device. "In the end, we tried simply copying the whole game onto a 3.5" floppy disk and jamming it into the back of the Vita, but this caused dangerous overheating and one of our test kits exploded, killing the entire NOT A HERO Vita Programming team in a fully upsetting and totally avoidable fireball of nasty burning," it says. Rest in pieces, etc.

Still, even with the comedic dressing, it's a bit crap that we won't be able to slaughter goons on the go. Is this something that you'd rather play on a portable console? Cap us square in the knees in the comments section below.
